Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Speaking of Cousins, Friends Neighbors etc.....

I saw the earlier thread about Dead members playing with other San Fran cats and found it ironic this was just put on dimadozen tonight. I had this a long time ago and I remember really liking it. This is not live but studio sessions that were never released. Some of it has the Novato Frank Band sound to it but that makes sense considering four members of that band are in on the recordings. Anyways, I hope you enjoy.

Currently seeding at dimeadozen:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=150679

Its studio sessions of who's who of the San Francisco scene recording at Micky Hart's Barn or "Rolling Thunder Studios".... The first ever "Fire on the Mountain" (1972) sung by none other than my personal guitar hero.....Mr Barry Melton, (the second one is sung by Robert Hunter). Anyways, the sessions are not that lousy "Bugs" album but other recordings known as the "Fire on the Mountain" and "Area Code 415" sessions.

Players include: Garcia,Hunter Lesh and Hart. Barry "the Fish" Melton, Bill Champlin( Sons of Champlin), Kathi MacDonald, David Freiberg(Quicksilver, Airplane), David LaFlamme (Its a Beautiful Day), (the other personal guitar hero) John Cipolina (Quicksilver), Micheal Bloomfield (Electric Flag), John McPherson (Novato Frank Band, Diga Rhythm Band), Ned Lagin plus some others.

Anyways if people want this and do not have an account to dimeadozen just write it down here in this thread and I will try to post it on some site for you to download.

Well you have to be a member so keep trying to log in throughout the day. Around midnight EST is the best time to try. Thats when they purge the old members and new slots open up.
There are other sites that do not need membership like tradersden.org or shnflac.net. Good luck

And I thought reading Phil's book would be the extent this week of learning things about the band that I didn't know. Anybody got a feather handy that they can use to knock me over?

The Novato Frank Band, eh? That's a brand new piece of Dead trivia for me to file in the clutter that is the RAM in my head. This site looks interesting:

http://www.bay-area-bands.com/bab00015.htm

A new addition for my to-do list: see if I can find a source to hear that single from '77. Is it at the link you posted?

And lest we forget, Crosby's If I Could Only Remember My Name, a lesser-known masterpiece (in terms of mass recognition), is a virtual Who's Who.

Put on your colors and run come see
Everybody says that music's for free
Take off your clothes and lie in the sun
Everybody says that music's for fun

Great band but more of a Melton/Cipollina thing really. I had no idea the Dead had anything to do with them so I learned something too about the Dead. I have a recording or two of the Frank Novato Band and I will try to find what site I got it from and post it here if you are interested.
